each department. It was also suggested that all bills be en- 
tered and ready for payment by noon of pay day.

HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of And over — 

Gentlemen: I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

During the months of January and February, when the 
town teams were not wanted to sand sidewalks, they filled 
up the hollow in front of the Robinson place, Union street, 
Frye Village. This was a dangerous place and required 648 
loads of sand which we purchased of Charles Davis for five 
cents a load. 

In March we graveled School street from Main street near- 
ly to Abbott street. Andover street leading from Ballard- 
vale was repaired. Opposite the Torr residence on Central 
street the hill was re-surfaced. The hollow on Woburn 
street was filled. 

More or less repairs have been made on every street in 
town. The road machine has been run 44 days repairing 
over a mile a day. This work was done in Osgood, Bailey, 
Abbott, Scotland, Cape and North districts. The gutters 
had their usual spring cleaning. This refuse was put on the 
Richardson field. 

The following streets have been macadamized : Union 
street, Frye Village, had 332 feet near the Robinson place. 
We laid 1402 feet from the river bridge on Main street to 
the Railroad bridge. This completes the macadam road 
on both Main street and Union street from the Railroad 
birdge to the Lawrence line. The approach to the Railroad 
bridge was paid for by the Boston & Maine R. R., price $250. 
This amount has been received by the town treasurer. 

Two hundred feet have been macadamized on Central street 
beginning at Shawsheen bridge and passing under the rail- 
road bridge near Hartwell Abbott's, and extending both 
right and left. 



41 

Thirty-two hundred feet of macadam have been placed on 
the river road beginning at the foot of the hill near the fish 
brook, where we left off in 1895 and going west toward 
Lowell. 

By vote of the town, the repaiis on Chester street in Bal- 
lardvale were entrusted to my care. I cut down the hill, 
put in 175 feet of macadam, lowered the sidewalks and con- 
creted the gutters. As far as I can learn, every owner of a 
team is satisfied with this work. This makes 5309 feet of 
macadam put in last year. 

New gravel sidewalks have been built on the following 
streets: Summer, 671 feet, Main, 400 feet, Salem, 220 feet, 
Tewksbury, Ballardvale, 720 feet, Andover street, Ballard- 
vale, 644 feet, making a little over a half mile. 

The following sidewalks have been concreted: We began 
at William Wood's and laid 3422 feet towards town, con- 
necting with that at Sweeney's corner at Pearson street, 
thus giving the citizens from Frye village a continuous walk 
to the Square. We concreted a sidewalk on Salem street, 
and laid 250 feet on Tewksbury street, Ballardvale, near 
Bancroft Haynes'. 400 feet of sidewalk were concreted on 
Phillips street, near Amos Blanchard's. A concrete cross- 
ing ten feet wide has been laid from Memorial Hall 
to the Post Office. Another crossing from the Musgrove 
building crosses Elm street to High street, and one was 
laid on School street across Morton street. The concrete 
gutters on Pearson, Main and Essex streets have been re- 
paired. 

The bridge near Hartwell Abbott's required new planking. 
When we got the plank up, we found the timbers so badly 
decayed, we were obliged to put in new ones. This we had 
made no calculation for in the appropriation and the ex* 
pense was $411. 

The retaining wall on the river road known as Deer Jump, 
fell down. The expense of repairing would nearly re-build 
it. The road here was very narrow making it a dangerous 



42 

place. I consulted Mr. Boutwell and we decided that now 
was the time to make the road the proper width. We built 
a new wall 84 feet long, 4 feet thick, 40 feet of which was 
16 1-2 feet deep. When filled in and finished the expense 
was a little over $500. 

The culvert at Frye village carrying the overflow from 
Hussey's Pond fell in at both ends. This had to be relaid 
and made longer. This cost 8170. Both of these pieces 
of work were. unexpected and also expensive. 

The bridge at Stevens' Mills was covered with two inch 
plank. New planking was put on the River street bridge in 
Ballardvale. Five culverts have been laid over on the Syl- 
vester Lovejoy road near Haggetts Pond. Two catch basins 
were put in, one near the Musgrove building and one on 
High street. The people owning land on the west side of 
the culvert on School street have lowered the brook. This 
does away with the stagnant water at this place. 

We put up and painted 850 feet of railing near Deer 
Jump. New rails have been put up near Sweeney's house 
on Main street, on Cogswell's hill, beside the brook near Mr. 
Baker's, and on the bank wall on Railroad street west of Mr. 
Pratt's. 

The Hokey Pokey cart has been used between the Tyer 
Rubber Shop and the top of the hill on Main street, and its 
driver has kept Main street and its crossings clean. The 
streets in Ballardvale have been kept in excellent condition 
by Mr. Haggerty, with the pair of town horses kept there. 

I built 3600 ft. of State Highway on the turn pike, begin- 
ning where we left off last year, and coming towards town 
as far as John Abbott's corner, doing this at the request of 
the selectmen.

Right here, gentlemen, perhaps it will not be out of place 
to say a word about the grade. For the last ren years at 
town meeting a certain citizen has made a statement some- 
thing like this, — that the Highway Surveyors or those in 
charge of the streets have paid no attention to grade, bench 
marks, or the like, and have gone on burying the streets in 
gravel. I beg leave to differ from him in regard to this. 

Daring my term of office, I have built two miles and a 
half of road for the State on Main Street, which certainly 
has been built to grade. I have also built several thousand 
feet on the same street graded exactly in the same manner 
as the State road. 

Park street, from Punchard avenue to Bartlett street, was 
built to grade stakes driven by an engineer, as was Locke 
street, from School to Main street. 

Morton street extension was built according to a plan 
drawn by R. A. Hale, as was also Railroad street. When we 
were building Railroad street, an objection was made by one 
member of the board of road commissioners. I got Mr. 
Hale to come over and after inspecting the work, he spoke 
to the board of selectmen (of whom Mr. Boutwell is the only 
surviving member) with these words, "Gentlemen, your com- 
missioners have given you a better road than the plan called 
for." 



44 

Chester street in Ballardvale was built to grade, and lastly 
Avon street was laid out by an engineer. When the sub- 
grade was finished, the engineer said it was the best sub- 
grade he had ever seen. I merely say this to show that 
wherever I have done anyjpermanent work, I have tried to 
do it for the best interests of the town. 

In regard to graveled roads, I put on just as little as pos- 
sible to crown the street and make the water flow into the 
gutters. When we consider that the gravel is always wear- 
ing out, and being pushed by the wheels and rain into the 
gutters, and that in just the one season of 1899 we took out 
over a thousand loads of this from the gutters, I fail to see 
where the town can lay out $29,000, as stated by this citizen 
a short time since, to put the graveled roads into the condi- 
tion called for by grade plans. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOSEPH T. LOVEJOY, 

Highway Surveyor.

OVERSEERS OF POOR 



We consider ourselves fortunate in still retaining the ser- 
vices of Mr. and Mrs. Burnham. The house is in first class 
condition. As you will see by the report on Page 76, a 
large proportion of the inmates are old people who require 
considerable attention. Mrs. Burnham seems specially 
adapted to care for the old ladies under her charge. Those 
unfortunate people seem happy and contented and look on 
Mrs. Burnham as their best friend. Under Mr. Burnham's 
management the farm still shows a marked improvement. 
The receipts of the farm are $2712.56. The State Inspec- 
tor's report classes the management and care of the inmates 
one of the best in the state. The inmates are well clothed 
and fed, and with Mr. Burnham's good management of the 
farm, the expense is only $1.63 per week for each inmate. 

We invite the people of the town, both men and women, 
to visit the Almshouse and note its condition and the pro- 
vision made for the care and comfort of the inmates.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their annual 
report with a statement of the receipts and expenditures for 
the year ending January 1st, 1901. 

During the past year the usual work on the avenues, walks, 
paths and lawns, has been carefully looked after, trees and 
shrubbery planted, an enlargement plat for the single graves 
made and many large boulders removed from the avenues 
and walks. Much time and money has been expended upon 
the newly plotted easterly part of the cemetery, stumps re- 
moved, ground levelled and underbrush burned. The plat 
lately located in the south-western part of the cemetery will 
require a large expenditure of money to prepare it for burial 
purposes and most of the work therefor must be performed 
the coming year. Your committee, therefore, ask for the 
usual appropriation of $300 and proceeds from sale of lots 
for the care of the cemetery the ensuing year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. 



A large part of the appropriation made for the Park Com- 
mission was expended in lowering the grade of the drive way 
at the entrance of Carmel Woods near the old gravel pit. in 
filling in and grading this unsightly spot, and - _ -tone 

steps at the approach of Micheila path. No expenditures 
have been made in setting out trees and Bhrubs except to 
cover the embankment where grade of drive way was Lowered. 
Mr. Wm. T. Jackson contributed a lot of wild Rhododen- 
drons taken from the mountain Bides of Pennsylvania which 
will make a grand show in a few years, and if unmol 
will doubtless spread rapidly. Mr. Goldsmith kindly set 
them out in a well chosen spot. There are many places in 
these woods where trees and shrubs can lie set nut to ad- 
vantage and we wish others would follow the bad of .Mr. 
Jackson. The commissioner will be glad to attend to the 
setting out of anything valuable which is contributed. 

Many dead limbs have been cut from trees, bushes cut and 
burned, leaves have been raked and the woods generally 
have been kept in a tidy condition. At this time i r does not 
seem advisable to the commissioners t<> ask for more than 
one hundred dollars to be used in Carmel Woods the coming 
year. There has been very little work done on the Richard- 
son land except to dig trenches for the dumping in of road 
scrapings, ashes, etc., and leveling off the same. One hun- 
dred dollars will be ample to use on this land the coming 
year for this kind of work.

TREE WARDEN 



The Tree Warden makes the following report : 
With the appropriation of five hundred dollars made by 
the town at the last March meeting, I could not get over the 
whole territory that comes under the care of the Tree War- 
den, and therefore did what I could within a radius of a mile 
from the centre. 

The work shows for itself. I set out trees to fill spaces on 
Bartlett, Chestnut, Park, Florence, Whittier, North Main 
and Marland streets, also some in Abbott Village, — about 
one hundred trees in all. I began the pruning of trees in 
front of the Town Hall and trimmed up Main street to the 
end of the trolley line ; went to Punchard avenue, Bartlett 
street, Whittier street, thence to Elm street and out as far as 
the residence of Rev. F. H. Johnson. I then finished the work 
on Abbott and Brook streets. On the above named streets I 
tried to do thorough work, but had to stop as money was get- 
ting low and it was necessary to do something on other 
streets in way of removing large dead limbs which endan- 
gered life and property. Work should be done on all the 
streets in the town, and in my judgement a thousand dollars 
can be well expended the coming year on work which comes 
under the jurisdiction of the Tree Warden. After which, a 
small appropriation each year will keep the trees in good 
condition. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES L. CARTER, Tree Warden.

REPORT ON MARKING GRAVES 

OF 

REVOLUTIONARY HEROES 



To the Selectmen of Andover r Mass. : 
Gentlemen : 

The Phoebe Foxcroft Phillips Chapter, D. R., report on 
the marking of revolutionary patriots' graves as follows : 

Probably over a hundred revolutionary patriots are buried 
in the South and West Parish cemeteries. Thirty-two 
markers placed in the former cemetery and eighteen in the 
latter exhausted the appropriation made at the March meet- 
ing in 1900. 

The markers in the South cemetery were set in November 
but owing to the lateness of the season when the markers 
arrived, those for the West cemetery were stored in the tool 
house there until Spring. 

The last resting places, not yet marked, of these patriots 
may be divided into five groups : 

1. Those with headstones where similarity of names and 
dates of death needed further evidence in order to correctly 
locate the markers. 

2. Those in family lots with no headstones. 

3. Those in family lots where the names are inscribed on 
the monument with others, not patriots. 

4. Tombs containing patriots. 

5. Unknown graves of patriots whose names appear on 
town or church records as buried in And over. 

The graves of the first group have already been for the 
most part identified ; the second, third and fourth groups 
require a marker with tablet for name, but those of the fifth 
group cannot be marked until the burial place of each is 
proven. 



103 

The chapter asks that an article appropriating one hun- 
dred dollars be inserted in the Warrant for thetcoming town 
meeeting, for the further marking and designation of the 
graves of revolutionary patriots under the direction of the 
Chapter. 

A list of the names of those marked this year, or before r 
is appended.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 
ROGERS BROOK 



To the Citizens op Andover : 

We respectfully call your attention to the following re- 
port of the engineer. 

Andover, Mass., Jan. 24, 1901. 

To Arthur Bliss, Chas. L. Carter, John H. Flint, Felix G. 
Hay nes and John L. Smith, Committee on Rogers Brook. 

Gentlemen : — Acting under your instructions I have made 
an examination of that portion of Rogers Brook lying be- 
tween Main and Whittier streets and submit the following 
report. 

Surveys have been made and plotted as shown on accom- 
panying plan and profile. On August 6, 1900, an investi- 
gation showed the culvert crossing Main street to be in 
fairly clear condition, at a curve in the brook through 
private land, about 160 feet from Main street, the retaining 
walls had fallen for a distance of about 35 feet, contracting 
the width between walls to such an extent that the carrying 
capacity was diminished about 30 per cent. 

The culvert beyond this point, under land of J. W. Bar- 
nard and Bartlet street, was filled an average of seven 
tenths of a foot with silt, due to the clogging of the brook 
mentioned. Planks, boxes, barrels and other rubbish were 
in various places caught across the culvert in such manner 
as to block fully 50 per cent, of the waterway. Beyond Bart- 
let street the bed of the brook rises about two feet in a dis- 
tance of ten feet, from there to Chestnut street the land is 
quite flat and the brook is very shallow, an abundance of 
drift wood, etc. was found on these flats ready to be floated 
off at the first rise of the brook. 



106 

At Chestnut street the culvert is shallow, allowing a depth 
of two and a half feet of water to pass through it. At 
Whittier street the bottom of the brook is mucb too high to 
allow the water from the flats beyond to pass. 

As shown on the accompanying plan the brook curves at 
sharp angles at three places, the brook course at two of 
these points being shallow the brook must overflow its banks 
before depth enough of water can be obtained to give the re- 
quired velocity. On the Town lands this can be easily over- 
come, on private lands the straightening of the brook might 
become a serious question of land damages. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH, 

Engineer. 

Under the opinion of the Town counsel, any action in the 
matter must be taken under Chap. 80 of the Public Statutes, 
which gives the Board of Health power to act under cer- 
tain conditions. 

Very respectfully, 

ARTHUR BLISS, 
CHAS. L. CARTER, 
JOHN H. FLINT, 
FELIX G. HAYNES, 
JOHN L. SMITH, 

Committee

TWENTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 
OE THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. 



The Librarian's statistical report attests the continued 
usefulness of the circulating and reference departments of 
the Library. In round numbers, 500 new books have been 
added to the Library during the past year, and there has 
been an aggregate circulation of 20,000 volumes, 1600 of 
which have been delivered by special carrier in the out- 
districts. A new system of distribution of juvenile books, 
in the public schools, through the teachers, has been in 
operation since February 1900, and 1500 volumes have 
been issued in that way. 

The 5000 visitors to the Cornell Art Room, including 
scholars brought by their teachers, and strangers in town 
brought by their friends, furnish constant and gratifying 
proof of the wisdom of Mr. Cornell's bequest. In extend- 
ing still further this plan of popular education through pic- 
tures, the Trustees have just now purchased five hundred 
stereoscopic views, representative of history, art and scenery 
in foreign countries as well as our own, which are to be on 
exhibition in the Art Room, and also to be issued, under 
proper conditions, for use in the classes of our public schools. 
The record of attendance kept by the Superintendent of the 
Art Room is appended. 






Ill 

Number of visitors: Adults, 2756; Children. 2212; Total, 
4968. Average daily attendance, 48; in winter months, 103. 

The Art Boom was opened January 12, 1900, and since 
March 23, has been kept open on Friday and Saturday 
afternoons, and on Saturday evening. 

JULIA E. TWICHELL. 



The patrons of the Library are reminded of the oppor- 
tunity to suggest titles of books for purchase; the Librarian 
will furnish, on application, slips upon which the entries are 
to be made.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works herewith submits its second 
annual report embracing the twelfth annual report of Water 
Commissioners and fourth annual report of Sewer Commis- 
sioners for the year ending Jan. 15, 1901. 

SEWERS 

There have been 279 buildings connected with the sewers, 
a gain of 73 since the last report. 

The cost of sewers to 1900 was $108,638.76 

Expended during the year, 11,247.47 

Cost of system to date, $119,886.23 

Sewer bonds sold, $125,000.00 

The past year has been a busy one in this department. 
The lines laid in previous years have been looked after and 
put in proper shape when required. A short piece of new 
work on Main street near R. R. Bridge, new lines on Central 
street, from Phillips street to house of Geo. Ripley, and the 
whole of Phillips street have been completed. There has 
been constructed a pumping plant near the junction of Abbot 
street. The pump house is under the street entirely hidden 
from view and in no way interferes with or causes any in- 
convenience to street traffic. An automatic pump which 
regulates itself as regards requisite power derived from the 
water system is installed in the building and does the work 
admirably. This is a good piece of engineering viewed from 
any stand point. It requires but little attention, and very 



effectually disposes of the sewage which collects at that 
point. In connection with this pump an extra line of cast 
iron pipe is laid to Central street and along that street to its 
junction with School street. This line is entirely indepen- 
dent of the regular sewer on that street and merely serves to 
pump the sewage through from Phillips street and part of 
Central into the School street line. 

The other pump on Main street is doing finely, is easily 
cared for and the expense to run it is not heavy. The sur- 
roundings have in some measure been improved by grading 
the lot and fencing it. 

The filter beds are in good condition and are taking care 
of the sewage with less trouble than was anticipated. They 
will require some care until the banks are well grassed, but 
beyond this the outlay will be light. The whole system as 
adopted by the town, with additions authorized at later meet- 
ings have been completed, excepting a few extension which 
may be made later. 

All claims for damages to private property and rights of 
way outside of town ownership have been adjusted without 
litigation or extra expense. In the act of incorporation pro- 
vision is made for partial payments on sewer assessments 
under certain conditions. Whenever such a request as pro- 
vided in the act has been made, that more time be allowed in 
which to pay assessments, we have apportioned them into 
equal yearly payments which will in some measure relieve 
those to whom one payment would be a hardship. 

The rate of interest changed on unpaid assessments is the 
per cent named in the charter and so adopted by the town, 
and we have no discretionary powers in the matter whatever. 
Our simple duty requires that we carry out the wishes of 
the town to the best of our ability. 

WATERWORKS 

Number of services in use, 876 

Number of meters, 643 



Cost of system to date, $208,624.48 

Bonds issued, 200,000.00 

Bonds redeemed, 55,000.00 

Maintenance expenses, $4,915.23 

Interest, $6,000.00 

Water rates, $10,668.47 

But little has been done in this department in the way of 
construction work during the year. The works have been 
kept in good condition and all matters connected with the 
welfare of the system have received proper attention. 

Among the applications received for water service are sev- 
eral which if granted will require additional street lines. It 
is our opinion that where it is feasible and the requisite in- 
come is assured at the time with a fair prospect of continu- 
ing, the pipe should be laid and the parties supplied. 

It has been the aim of the Water Board from the begin- 
ning to develop and improve the system in every possible 
manner compatible with the interests of the town. It has 
required more or less outlay each year to do this, but in so 
doing new patrons have been secured, and the revenues 
increased. It seems that this policy should be pursued. 
The town is growing and each year new demands are made 
which can only be met with more or less expenditure. 

Since 1890 the water rates have been revised twice and in 
both instances where large quantities of water were used the 
rates were reduced, so that at the present time no town 
in the State is enjoying lower rates. Yet with these re- 
ductions the receipts from water rates have increased from 
$5,977.41 in 1895 to $10,668.47, the amount received this 
year. It will be necessary to have a new boiler the coming 
year as one of those now in use is, or soon will be, unfit for 
service and is not worth the very extensive repairs that 
would be required by the inspectors. An appropriation for 
this will be in order as there are no funds available for this 
purpose. The very large increase in the amount of water 
used by water takers and for town purposes is a matter of 



6 

great importance to all interested in the water system. In 
his report the Superintendent has made a very plain and 
candid statement of the conditions of the system and what 
may be necessary for its welfare in the future and we ask a 
careful perusal of his report pertaining to this matter. 

It is very evident that some means must be provided for 
emergences like this or any that may arise requiring expen- 
diture of money. All of the bonds that were authorized 
have been issued and sold and it certainly seems the better 
way for the town to apply to the present legislature for per- 
mission to issue more water bonds, rather than appropriate a 
sum each year to be raised by taxation. The tax rate is 
high enough already and should the permission be granted, 
the town can then authorize the sale of whatever amount 
each year is necessary and the difference in the tax rate 
from this source would not be noticeable and no hardship im- 
posed as the income from the system will increase in pro- 
portion to the outlay. 

There was expended last year on acccount of Water 
Works : 

For redemption of bonds, $5000.00 

Interest on bonds, 6000.00 

Amount added to sinking fund, 750.00 

Maintenance acc't, 4916.00 

Construction purposes, 3485.69 

The town received for this expenditure last year : 
Cash for water rates, 110,668.47 

" " service pipe acc't., 2,061.70 

The town also was supplied with water for the following 
purposes which if charged at the lowest meter rates for the 
estimated amount used and the hydrants reckoned at the 
average price paid by Mass. towns to private water companies, 
the amounts would be as follows : 

196 hydrants, at *25. each, $4900.00 

7 drinking fountains, at $150. each, 1050.00 



Water supplies to town house, $ 50.00 

" " " engine houses, 150.00 

Poor farm, 100.00 

Memorial Hal), 10.00 

7 school houses, 175.00 

Power repair shop, 350.00 

2 sewer pumps, 150.00 

Flushing sewers, 10.00 

Highway Department, 100.00 

Street sprinkling, 600.00 

Mr. William S. Jenkins and Mr. James P. Butterfield, 
members of this Board, passed away during the year. 

Mr. Jenkins was a member of the first Sewer Board and 
was connected with that and the present Board while he 
lived. Mr. Butterfield was elected a member of the first 
Water Board in 1889 and served continuously on that and 
the present one for nearly twelve years. 

The report of the Superintendent accompanies this, to 
which we refer you for details and much useful information 
regarding the two systems. 

Very respectfully,

The construction of sewers was done under a continuation 
4 of the contracts of 1899, with the exception of a short ex- 
tension on North Main Street which was done by day labor. 
Central and Phillips Streets sewers were designed and built 
to collect the sewage in an underground tank at a point on 
Phillips near Abbot Street, a pump being installed at that 
place which lifts the sewage to the intercepting sewer at the 
corner of School and Central Streets. The location, size and 
length of sewers and underdrains laid during 1900 are :

made. Total number of applications, 296 ; total number of 
connections made, 279 ; length of house connections laid 
during 1900, 3151 feet. 

The boilers at the pumping station are rapidly deteriorat- 
ing. Boiler No. 2 was patched during the year and is in 
fair condition. Boiler No. 1 will require an expenditure of 
about $400 to make it safe to run at 95 lbs. steam pressure ; 
even at this it will be but a few years when the steam pres.

sure will have to be cut down. I would, therefore, advise 
that Boiler No. 1 be replaced with a new boiler built to carry 
120 lbs. pressure. 

An inspection of the pumping records, shows that at the 
present rate of increase in consumption, we will be obliged 
to establish two watches at the Pumping Station or pump 
more water per hour. The establishment of two watches 
means an increase in pumping expenses of about $1000 a 
year. We have ample capacity in our pumping plant for the 
desired increase per hour; the trouble to be overcome is 
friction in the force main. At present we are pumping at 
the rate of 72000 gallons per hour with a friction head of 
125 feet. An increase of 33 per cent, in the rate of pump- 
ing will increase the frictional head to 247 feet, creating a 
greater pressure than is safe for the pipes in the lower 
sections to carry. 

By laying an 8 inch pipe from H. Barnard's, on Lowell 
Road, to Andover Street, Ballard Yale, we would practically 
obtain a second force main and accomplish the desired result 
without increase of friction. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
